LightPointe Wireless Point-to-Point FSO Bridge Customers Receive Two Year Warranty in June

Company celebrates 80th birthday of its Chief Scientist (“the Father of Optical Wireless Transmission Technology") with special promotion for June.

San Diego, CA, June 08, 2012 --( LightPointe, the number one manufacturer of point-to-point Gigabit capacity wireless FSO bridges, and a world leader in 60 GHz small cell and 80 GHz backhaul radios used for broadband transmission, is providing a two year warranty on all Free Space Optics bridges in June, in honor of its Chief Scientist Dr. Erhard Kube on his 80th birthday. Dr. Kube, who is regarded as the “Father of Optical Wireless Transmission Technology,” dedicated his career to optical communications technology and data transmission innovation. His study of the transmission of light through the atmosphere led to today’s 4th generation Free Space Optics wireless bridges which are the fastest point-to-point data transmission technology, provide up to 99.999% availability, and enable laser-precise secure delivery of data. He has served as the Chief Scientist for LightPointe since its founding in 1998. The company is highlighting and celebrating Dr. Kube’s contributions with a special promotion for June on optical transmission bridges.

“As Dr. Kube celebrates his 80th birthday this month, and during an especially exciting time of growth for us with revenues up 42% this year, it reminds all of us at LightPointe of his contributions to our company,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe. “Dr. Kube’s discoveries led to many of the products used to interconnect high speed networks for businesses, schools, military, security applications, and 4G/LTE mobile telecom backhaul. Innovations in optical fiber and optical wireless networks enable the broadband connections and telecom services which make it possible to use bandwidth intensive devices such as laptops, the iPhone, and iPad, as well as IP video streaming services such as Netflix and video conferencing. All of us at LightPointe want to acknowledge Dr. Kube’s contributions and thank him for his ongoing work with our company as he celebrates this milestone.”
